Calming Color Meditation

  • Sit down somewhere comfortable
  • Close your eyes and take a couple of nice, deep, gentle breaths
  • Breathe in through your nose and down into your belly
  • Go ahead and choose a color that relaxes you – if you're not sure which color relaxes you see my list below and pick the one that speaks to you...
  • Using this color, create a ball of energy directly over your head
  • Begin to bring this ball slowly down through the top of your head 
  • Inhale and let this energy move gently down through your head, neck and shoulders
  • Allow it to wash away tension and distracting thoughts
  • See it continue down the front and back of your chest
  • Gently move this energy down through your abdomen and lower back
  • Continue to release any discomfort and stress
  • Soak in the color and move it gently over your pelvis, hips and thighs
  • Feel the energy move down your legs, relaxing all the muscles
  • With each breath you feel more relaxed, more at peace, and more in tune with yourself
  • Look down at your feet and see the energy glide out through the toes
  • Take a moment to scan your body and become aware of any pain or blocks. Create a ball of golden energy above your head. Allow this gold light to go to the parts of your body that still need healing. Let it absorb and neutralize the energy of these things.
  • Now go ahead and choose a different color. Feel the flow of energy moving from the top of your head all the way down and out your feet. How does your body feel at this new vibration?

I work with many different colors and have found the following to be true for me:

  • Red helps me ground and clears out fear
  • Orange supports self-healing and makes me joyful
  • Yellow keeps me positive and in present time
  • Green helps me stay calm and balanced
  • Blue clears my mind and assists with confidence, clarity and certainty
  • Indigo connects me to my creativity
  • Violet fills me with a greater sense of purpose and keeps me centered
  • Gold aligns me with Universal energy, unconditional love and peace

Experiment with every color so you can become conscious of the vibrations that work the best for your energy system. Different colors will help at different times. And remember, there is no such thing as a bad color!

Finding Your Healing Colors

Several years ago, I wanted to brighten up my dining room. After looking at different colors, I decided to paint it pumpkin orange. When the room was finished, I instantly began to feel the effects of this color and would feel energized and joyful whenever I entered the room.

Each of us experiences the effects of color. At times we may do this subconsciously. Every morning as we dress, we are drawn instinctively to a particular outfit because of the color.

Have you ever noticed that when you are going through a big life change or transition you begin to wear more purple? That’s because purple increases your spiritual connection and puts you in touch with your own wisdom and intuition.

Each color has its own unique vibration depending on its wavelength, and will affect you differently mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

While there are psychological archetypes associated with colors, two people may experience the same color very differently. By learning how each color influences you, you can effectively use this to adjust your mood, reduce stress, relax and tap into certain healing energies.

I practice various color meditations and find them incredibly powerful and effective. They can help heal old wounds, clarify situations and get you in touch with your own spiritual information. If you would like to try one for yourself I’ve included the link to my blog post where you will find a gentle color meditation designed to help you relax.
